The Ayalat of Nociav is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zarbh with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, otherworldly petting zoo, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.093 billion Nocis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiyab. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Noci economy, worth 928 trillion Zars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 226,837 Zars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,082,616 per year while the poor average 2,583, a ratio of 806 to 1.

Male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', inheritance tax has recently been abolished, a shocking number of estate planners are beneficiaries of their clients' wills, and economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nociav's national animal is the Argha, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Avaska.

Nociav is ranked 128,999th in the world and 4,918th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,696.13 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
